Let's help them to REPLACE
 fear, anxiety and depression with confidence, courage and a healthy self-esteem

Welcome to Getting Kids Social Again. Our mission is to assist you in dealing with all the emotions that get in the way of living a great life, to help you understand your children’s behaviour, and to give you the tools to help them to develop their Social Skills and Emotional Intelligence.

Our Story

We are a group of parents who are also Therapists, Counsellors and Teachers.  We know first-hand how tough it can be when you are not given an ’operating manual’ for each of your children when they are born.  The frustrations, the highs, the lows, the loneliness, the ‘what the heck do I do now’ moments and the endless sleepless nights when you lie in bed wracking your brain wondering if you messed up again or desperately trying to find the answers.  

We’ve been there and we’ve come out on the other side, stronger and wiser with children who not only survived, but thrived. There is a beautiful African proverb that says ‘it takes a village to raise a child.’  Let us be your virtual village.   We are here to help, to provide support and to hold your hand.   We will share our collective years of wisdom and knowledge, our tools and our little tricks so you can sleep better at night knowing that you are not alone.  If you have questions, we have answers. 

How can we help you?

Your One Stop Emotional Shop

Advice and support at your fingertips. This is our online service where you have access to our counsellors, therapists, and teachers to answer all those niggly questions you may have - whether it relates to your relationship, health, or parenting concerns, help is at hand.


Our qualified tutors are available to teach your children the essential life skills they need to be prepared for life’s ups and downs.  Emotional intelligence, social skills and more.  All our tutors are hand-picked, vetted, and assessed to make sure they are qualified before they become accredited. 


This service is for children who need more intensive support - children who need help recovering from bullying, dealing with anxiety or fear, or who need help building confidence and courage. We also offer coaching for parents and educators.

Now one big happy family
